Nine shots scored over the next 4 ends saw the gap extend to 10 shots, and this lead was maintained for the rest of the game .
Bob Edwards rink with Richard Crocker, Ray Rattray and Roger Mableson also had a good win 33 to 23 shots. They went to a 6 shot lead after 5 ends and the Gumeracha opposition never got in front from that point with Edwards cruising to victory.
Phil Nagel’s rink with Tim Anderson, Chris Rowe and Chris Button was the other winner scoring 28 shots to 26. Nagel got off to an incredible start to score 7 shots on the first end. The opposition was able to turn this around and went to a 5 shot lead at the 9th end. However, 11 shots scored over the next 5 ends saw Nagel go to a 5 shot lead but could not hold out Gumeracha who led by one shot with one end to play. Nagel’s team steadied and won the last end by 3 shots to take away 2 premiership points
On a warm day at Woodside, Hahndorf, 11th on the ladder played Woodside 7th.
Skip Tom Hennessy, Diane Turner, Pam Grego and Paul Williams had an excellent day with some beautiful accurate bowling, only being behind in the first end.

Skip Dave Grego, Jennie Benham, Dave Thyer and Rhonda Munday had an unsuccessful day going down 9-20. Jennie had some great shots as Lead. Skip Dave restricted Woodside to only one 4 and one 3 with some excellent bowling which certainly reduced their probable score. Final score 9-20.
